Ukraine-News: Russia suffers casualties on Snake Island

In the past few days, Russia has admitted drone attacks on its own troops, who in turn are stationed on Snake Island.

Days before said attack, Ukraine had already inflicted heavy casualties on the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

According to information from Kyiv, a tugboat from the Russian fleet was destroyed with the help of so-called Harpoon missiles.

A few weeks ago, the Russian Navy's flagship, the guided missile cruiser Moskva, was sunk in the Black Sea.

A spokesman for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense said the howitzers that Germany had delivered to Ukraine were already at the front.

In addition, the United States has announced the delivery of further Harpoon missile systems.
